If you read the FAQ's on the Windows 7 site, MS specifically says NO FREEBIES.

How do you submit bugs? I know there is a Submit Feedback link at the top of every program but that didn't collect any information that would identify who submitted the bug. On top of that the Send Feedback form seems more like a survey than a bug report tool.

How did submitting bugs work with the Vista beta?

The send feedback sends your beta key information with it so they know who you are. You just type a description of your bug and choose what area of the OS it's in in that drop down list.

By beta key do you mean the product key used to install/activate Windows 7? As far as I have seen the keys are not unique. There are about 5 shared keys for each version, 32-bit and 64-bit.

Maybe in Vista they used unique keys for the beta?

I've reported a few bugs with no replies from MS. So I doubt any such program is going on this time around. Besides I think they are stretched too thin on cash to offer any freebies this time around as well.
